    Forget twice. Thrice is nice. Today's Take Aim opponents –plural—are AJR. They are a trio of brothers (Adam, Jack and Ryan Met) from NYC who are WICKED talented and each on of 'em participated in Take Aim.

    So now you get to know each member of the band on a more intimate level.

    Adam:

    Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!

    We are a 3 brother indie pop band, NYC born and bred, and the living room is our recording studio. #nolabel #justfans.

    If you were not doing music, you would be...

    If I wasn't doing music, I would probably be a restaurant critic. I love food.

    Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?

    I am an avid reader and writer. I also enjoy biking in Central Park.

    Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?

    'Buy You a Rose' is a modern love song. The R&B stylings mixed with beat boxing shows a realistic concept of love: one that develops over time and through experiencing moments. The song is based in truth and tells actual events of a past relationship. The chorus is conveying the fact that: Even if I can't now, when I grow up, I will take care of you.

    Finish this sentence: A, J and R is the artist that...

    ...AJR is the artist that can lead through example: artists should maintain creative control of their art. If they are saying something, they should be able to stand behind their message.

    Ryan:

    Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!

    Indie-pop band AJR writes, produces, and mixes all their music in their living room in NYC #nolabel #justfans.

    If you were not doing music, you would be...

    In college. I am taking some time off to focus on music.

    Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?

    I really enjoy film: writing and directing.

    Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?

    The song 'Growing Old on Bleecker Street' is about the neighborhood we grew up in. The cobblestone streets have inspired many artists before us including one of our big influences, Simon & Garfunkel.

    Finish this sentence: A, J and R is the artist that...

    ...AJR is the artist that will grow and develop with the times while always listening to what the fans want.

    Jack:

    Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!

    AJR, Adam, Jack and Ryan are 3 bros hailing from NYC. Write record and mix all their music in their living room. #nolabel #justfans.

    If you were not doing music, you would be...

    A filmmaker. I really enjoy cinematography and combining a visual element with the music that we write.

    Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?

    I am an avid ping-pong and tennis player.

    The song 'AfterHours' is an anthem for our time. People now think that they can be whatever they want when they grow up and this is not really the case. There is a time however when they are still allowed to think that and don't have to face reality. 'AfterHours' celebrates the time of partying and drinking and living outside the moment.

    Finish this sentence: A, J and R is the artist that...

    ...AJR is the artist that will last. You will be seeing them for a while.

    Check out "I'm Ready" by AJR.



    And "Growing Old on Bleecker Street."
